If you are discovering that you're losing many fish off your lure, then you probably need to thoroughly check the hooks. Many fishermen do not realize that hooks can become blunt or twisted which makes fish harder to catch. When you switch out hooks, you dispel any other reason why you aren't successful.

 

To increase your chances of landing more fish, you must eliminate all unnecessary noise. Anything loud can scare the fish away quickly. When you fish quietly, your chances of catching a fish increase dramatically.

 

Even when you are fishing alone, it is essential that you remain quiet. If you begin making too much noise, it can actually cause problems for other fisherman in remote locations. Sound travels quite differently underwater and may be able to disrupt the fishing of people who are quite distant from you.

 

Before you buy your hooks and bait, think about what size of fish you're planning on catching. The bigger the fish, the bigger hooks and bait you'll need, but big bait will be wasted on smaller fish. You'll also want the size of the weights and bobbers you purchase to be in line with what you're hoping to catch.

 

When you are choosing your fishing rod, be sure the eyelets that hold the line are smooth. They should not have any kind of abrasive feel. Any roughness with the line could cause it to weaken or to snap at that vital point when you have caught that big fish.

 

When fishing in colder months and especially when ice fishing, wear plenty of layers, and bring spare clothing. You can always remove extra layers, but you can't put on clothes you didn't bring. Fishing is often a wet business, and in the cold, wet clothing can be a killer. Swap out wet clothes for dry when you can.

 

If your fishing spot is full of plants, fishing can become an irritating experience. While these can be annoying, fish love these areas and you are more likely to catch something here.

 

Be aware of hand odors when fishing. When your hands have too much perfume or other scents on them, the smell can be transferred to the bait. The fish in the water might just smell this and they then tend not to bite.

 

As previously noted, lack of experience in fishing is nothing to feel bad about because everyone was a beginner once. Learning to fish is as easy as pie. Even with so many levels to fishing, you can get in on it at any level as a hobby and by using the tips in this article, you will even be able to start your fishing venture right now!
